Program Details*


The Infamous Costume Parade


It’s one of the many things for which we are (justly) famous: costumes. Winners will be announced for Best Pun, Worst Pun, Best Traditional, Best Group, and whatever other categories strike the fancy of our judges, who are, as always, very open to bribes. Dress up as your favorite character. Put together a costume based on this year’ theme. Create a pun-tastic ensemble. Wear a traditional costume. Show your sexy side. Be part of a group. Or just show up as yourself.

If you will be entering the costume contest, be sure to get a numbered ticket and write your name(s) and identify your costume. Please speak loudly and clearly when you get to the microphone. The judges and the audience would like very much to hear the description of your costume.

Be prepared to laugh, groan, and, sometimes, to be confused. Enjoy this unique show that makes our Chicago Area Mensa RG so great.

Warning: Occasionally the costumes are not appropriate for younger or more sensitive viewers.

Robert Stalzer

Presenter’s Bio

Robert is returning to perform the job he was born to do. A true Renaissance man, when his penchant for random noogies derailed a promising career in the mortician field, Robert invented bubble-wrap filled with helium, and lighter packages resulted in lower shipping costs. (Ironic that his contract with the Bic lighter company shipping department ended so tragically.) (In Flint, Michigan, no less.)
